I was looking through my shelves and found most of what I was searching for. I have to hit the stash in the basement for a couple books (including the dinosaur joke book my hubby had as a kid) but for the most part, I will use what is shown in this picture. I am sure I will add a few more notebooking/lapbook components as we go through the unit but this is a good start.
I was just drifting off to sleep the other nite when my brain snapped on and reminded me that I had a set of dinosaur pictures [bulletin board set] that I bought eons ago when the two older kids were very young. I have not covered the dinos like I have had wanted to with the boy, so I am excited for this unit. He has always enjoyed dinosaurs (those Jurassic Park movies are on his top 10 list-even tho they are gross) so this should be fun!
We have very, very limited wall space in the education room, so I had to put these puppies up on the entrance walls [which is kind of angled, hence the two pictures to show all of them]. This spot is actually good b/cuz the boy sits so he can look up at them, at any time. I DID NOT put the evolutionist time line up-what I want to do is put up a couple note cards highlighting a few Bible verses that mention the leviathan. The little people are to show the scale (although this is far from being accurate) of the dinosaurs to humans.
(you can get the Answers books there too)
the other books I probably got from Amazon
I have no idea where I got the dino bulletin board set-
it would have been from a teacher's store/catalog
The Adventures in Science: Dinosaurs booklet is
probably out of print-it came in a group of activity books
that I also bought years ago. It has a bunch
of activity pages and such...so I will just pick and choose
what we want to do.
OH YEAH! I just remembered I have the
Dinosaur and Things Game by Aristoplay!
I bought this when my oldest was about 4/5 yrs old! By the looks of the box, you can tell it's been played with a lot! :) Even tho the boy is on the outer age limit noted on the box, we'll still play but be sure to add those question cards to make it a bit more difficult. And yes, we know this shows millions of years as the dates-we simply ignore them.
